Subject: This is certainly about civil societies and how they work
Subject: This speech is MOST DEFINITELY about secret societies
And don't say it has anything to do with communism or bay of pigs or any of that nonsense. He was speaking about the very same forces within our govt that killed him shortly after this speech. It's as simple as that. If you can't see then you're not trying hard enough. Listen to the speed again.
The very same forces that publicly executed Kennedy are the same forces that are pushing for war against Syria today. Nothing has changed in 50 years!! His speech has more meaning today than it ever did.
Subject: Hearing what you want vs what is said.
That being said; The speech the speech serves multiple purposes.
1. To appeal to the newspaper publishers (media) to be careful where matters of national security are concerned.
2. To clarify the ways and means of the communist regimes they were fighting either openly (Vietnam), covertly (Cuba) or in cases such as the cold war (Russia).
3. To ensure to the powers behind the media, that his administration would be as forthcoming and open as national security will allow.
4. To make sure that they (the press) understand their true and most important task; to inform the people to best safeguard their present and future. Specifically any undue and unlawful secrecy in government specifically his administration.
Personally I think he may have made some implications where he spoke on the repugnance of secrets, secret societies, and secret oaths. I do not see any other reason he should have made such comments. They were not required to make his point, to me those words were "extra". Why he made the comments like that, only he knows, but the fact he made them they way he did, implies more than the rest of the speech states.
We can argue all day about it being about secret societies, or about communism, but in the end its about both. Too choose one aspect and claim that's it, belittles the speech and shows how little we as a people actually listen to what's said versus what we think or are told is said.
Read it, or listen to it again without your preconceived notions, without the Utube titles, and NOT from a conspiracy website or mindset. Do that with an open mind, hear whats said as it is and not what you wish or what somebody told you to hear in it, and hopefully it will start a chain reaction of careful thought, rather than blind acceptance. Then we won't have to worry about being led to our fate, but rather create our own.
Subject: This speech is NOT about secret societies
This speech had NOTHING to do with any alleged secret societies.
Subject: In response to djlhdjfh
Subject: Last American President
On a lighter note
Please PLEASE somebody make some music sampling this! What he says is very important, his words are so hard hitting and the phrasing is almost musical.
Subject: Look at the date.
Subject: JFK ain't the only one!
This was also talked about by Washington (pre-Communism), Jefferson (pre-Communism), Franklin (pre-Communism), Lincoln (pre-Communism), Woodrow Wilson, FDR, Nixon, and the list goes on.
Besides if JFK ment Communists, then I'm sure he'd just say, Secret Communist Societies!
Subject: JFK Hints At Secret Societies Threatening America
Get it folks? This guy is talking about the very people that ultimately killed him.
Subject: Tremendous speech!!
Subject: Keep your mouth SHUT!
About the recording. This is one truly amazing recording as it truly sounds like it was made yesterday. Not a speck of hissing or anything. EXCELLENT job here. My only complaint that it ends prematurely, would have liked to have some fanfare after he finished, rather than the recording ending just right after the last word he says, But that's a minor squabble.
